The Arts Center at Duck Creek is pleased to announce Sally Egbert: Some Years Around the Sun, an exhibition of new paintings and sculpture opening June 29, 5-7pm and on view through Sunday, July 21, 2019.

“Sally Egbert’s paintings remind me a bit of Helen Frankenthaler in the ephemeral softness of the color fields she constructs. Her atmospheres are fluid, washes of strong color that seem to respond to invisible influences.They are not immediate strokes but residues and soaks and stains that evoke the passage of time, an almost naturalistic feeling of flow and an accumulation of happy accident…Egbert’s fields seem be drifts of midnight fog refracting neon, with headlights or taillight proving movement, or perhaps the abraded walls of Lascaux primed with dyes for ritual images, the foregrounds are given to hard and fast colors colliding and fracturing, or perhaps the opposite, re-assembling forms from a primal memory. As the rearview mirror says rather art historically, ‘Objects may appear closer…’” - Glenn O’Brien
